Editorial Reviews

This Texas songwriter started out supplying songs for the likes of Waylon Jennings, Emmylou Harris and Willie Nelson before he shot to solo stardom in the '80s. His first proper retrospective takes you from 1977 to 2003 and includes his country #1s I Couldn't Leave You if I Tried; She's Crazy for Leavin' , and After All This Time plus a duet with Johnny Cash and 12 more!

Format: Audio CD
Rodney Crowell has a gift--the ability to craft words into poetry. There are a few others who have, over time, possessed this gift--Kristofferson, Dylan, Nelson. After one listen to this album, you will understand why I am putting Rodney Crowell in this elite group.

Many of these songs have become hits for others: "I ain't Livin Long Like This" (Waylon), "Please Remember Me" (Tim McGraw), "Shame on the Moon" (Bob Seger, and "Lovin All Night" (Patty Lovelace" all come to mind. So you know that Crowell's peers respect him. But few songs are so world-conscious as the rap on "Fate's Right Hand," or as melancholy as "Many a Long & Lonesome Highway". "Still Learning How To Fly" is a song for everyone who isn't finished yet. And if you want lighter fair, there's the hilarious "She's Crazy for Leaving," and the sing-along tribute to (and duet with) former-father-in-law Johnny Cash, "I Walk the Line (Revisited)".

THE ESSENTIAL RODNEY CROWELL is for long-time Crowell fans, and those just coming to recognize his talent. Maybe not the world's best singer, but certainly one of the best songwriters and tunesmiths--along with a select few, Rodney Crowell helped change country music songwriting forever. Buy this album and hear why. It is, in all honesty, essential.

Rodney Crowell is definitely one of the greatest singer/ songwriters ever. This is a great addition to my music collection.
I always liked songs when performed by others, but to hear the songwriter singing his own songs is great.

Mr Crowell is one of Nashville's best kept secrets ( except to them). His voice flows as smooth as ice over August heated skin leaving behind flesh aching for more. After hearing this CD be prepared to fall in love.

If you like mainstream music Rodney’s not your cup of tea….if you’re a Ketchum, Yoakum, Petty.... type Rodney’s your cup.
Sometimes it hits home from the first note…that would Ketchum to me….sometimes it sinks in…that’s Rodney.
I prefer singer/song writers…and that’s what they are.

This Rodney Crowell CD titled The Essential Rodney Crowell is one of the best CD's I have purchased in awhile. I like variety and just hate listening to the usual "same short play list" every day on radio. Some older music mixed with songs I have never heard plus a couple of new songs is what I like. This CD fits in with todays music even though most songs are from a time before! I also like to dance to country music and many of these songs are great dance songs. Try it, you'll "Love It All Night" too!

This cd was for my son who is autistic. He loves music and learned to talk through music. He listens to the cd and is learning the songs. He never knew who Rodney Crowell was, but when he heard on of his songs on the radio, he started searching for the cd. I have always liked Rodney's music and now, so does my son. A great cd to add to or very large collection of music.

I added this album to my collection a couple of years ago and what a great addition it is. I play this CD all the time and have never grown tired of it. I you have a chance to see him in person, go. He's wonderful and very personable. He's got lots of terrific stories he shares with the audience and it really adds to the performance. A very talented and gifted singer/songwriter who's seen it all. Rodney Crowell is an American treasure.

This CD is absolutely fantastic! I've always thought "After All This Time" to be one of the greatest songs ever written; this CD has it and many more that you will like. "Aint Living Long Like This" originally made famous by Waylon Jennings, is another classic . Rodney Crowell is just a great writer, vocalist, and what I've learned about him a pretty darn good guy too. This has quickly become one of my favorite CDs.
